TUAW Exclusive: MacHeist details
From the people who brought you My Dream App comes the next big thing in Mac software. You might have seen other sites talking about MacHeist, but unlike everyone else in our little corner of the internet, we actually know what MacHeist is all about.

Here's what we know:
  • The eventual product of the site will be a deeply discounted software bundle only made available to users. I've had a look at the contents of the bundle as they stand so far, and they are, as those crazy kids say "killer dude"
  • Dozens of Mac developers have signed up to participate in MacHeist
  • Throughout the event, users can participate in mysterious "heists" to gain an even deeper discount on the bundle as well as special freebies.
  • The event will be invitation only, at least for the first couple of weeks, with users selected out of those who signed up on the MacHeist or My Dream App sites.
  • This encrypted message has appeared on the MacHeist RSS feed:

Even with what little info we do have, it sounds like MacHeist will be just as much fun as My Dream App, if not more so, and full of great deals to boot!
